Brought the family & friends to this restaurant, was greeted immediately by friendly staff. Since we had kids with us we choose to sit at the back of the restaurant. No kids menu, my 2 younger children (8 &12) shared a medium Ambrosia pizza and both were very happy with it. My eldest (16) as well as my 2 friends... More

My friend and I came to Athene's for an early dinner. As it was a warm summer day, the large windows and doors were wide open and we were immediately greeted and seated by one of the open windows looking on to West Broadway. It's quite a large restaurant, so there were lots of tables - a good place for... More

Greek restaurant quite far west on Broadway that offers open window side tables in the nice weather. The menu is fairly typical for Vancouver Greek restaurants with a wide variety of Greek offerings, pasta and pizza. The dolmathes were nicely spiced and the calamari crispy yet tender. Most of my group ordered lamb souflaki which for me was cooked perfectly,... More

Ordered the large lamb souvlaki. It was cooked well and was tasty. Portions was good. I should have ordered the small as the size looked the same. I would go back again for the food. But would like to try other Greek restaurants in the area. The service was subpar. Couldn't hear the server as she was soft spoken. She... More

The food is abundant for a great price. My wife had lamb souvlaki and I had the Arni Soubia, another lamb dish. Service was good.

Service fantastic ...soup great...portions generous and flavourful ...but give the fried food such as calamari and zucchini a pass...too greasy and mushy...so stick to the true Greek specialties and you are golden...handled our party of eight with no problem!

I've been to Athene's a few times and like the atmosphere there. We've been there when it's not usually too busy so it's relaxing. We've also had good customer service there. I usually go there because it's one of the only Greek restaurants I know of that serves grilled squid so that's what I usually order. However, the last 2... More

I have been to this restaurant at least ten times over the years, and the reasons we keep going back are simple - good food, big portions, good value for your money. The decor is fun - very Greek and not as tacky as some Greek places. The staff are accommodating. If you plan an event for a large group,... More

We dined at Athene's Restaurant during a recent visit to Vancouver. We had a party of eight and all had different dishes. While we made a reservation, we found that we didn't need it on this mid-week day. The staff was very cordial and sat us immediately upon arrival. After we ordered, a basket of warm Pita bread came along... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighborhood Profile
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
